The Strengthening Families Program for Parents and Youth, 10-13 years, is a nationally recognized, science based, best practices program that assists in learning techniques to deal with day to day issues that come up within the family structure. Parent will learn skills on how to support their pre-teen and teens, and youth will learn important refusal skills.

From Parents...

"We saw that other parents have the same issues as us with subling rivalry, stress, chores, time management, etc.
We strongly encourage families to attend."

"The program provided helpful suggestions on discipline and making rules that work."

 

From Youth...

"I didn't realize how much my mom cared about me"

"I learned what to say if someone is trying to get you in trouble"
